Forecast

Dathanna (13/8), Di Fede (6/1), Amazing Michele (6/1), Che Bella (7/1), Deadly Reel (10/1), Mahaarat (10/1), Shazzab (16/1), Barefoot Baby (16/1), Show Of Force (16/1), Double Reflection (25/1), Camomile Lawn (33/1)

Verdict

A cracking little nursery, and whilst it is now late in the season, this race should produce plenty of future winners. Richard Fahey saddles three runners, and although each is interesting in their own right, Amazing Michele appears strongest today with conditions seemingly ideal. Deadly Reel looks a likely improver with cheek-pieces fitted, and if not today, she should be capable of finding a race sooner rather than later. However, both Dathanna and MAHAARAT set the benchmark fairly high. Admittedly the draw could have been far kinder, but the Michael Stoute trained filly is the type to be ideally suited by the galloping aspect of this track, and she can be expected to be stronger than the others late on from a fair opening mark of 84.
